a possible drawdown with u.s. secretary general. for now, though the fighting continues. israeli air strikes killed nearly 40 people today, groups in gaza respondented by shooting nearly 100 rockets in israel. and on the israeli side of the border things appeared remarkably calm today. this picture has caused a stir online. it shows israelis watching passively as in-coming missiles sail over head. so why to israelis feel so comfortable out in the open as missiles fly above them? because of something called the iron dome. it's a defense system that uses radar to detect in-coming rockets and determine where they will land. if it is headed towards a populated area the gunner shoots the missile out of the sky. it is particularly good at detecting the smaller, older rockets that the palestinians use. iron dome has had an incredible 85% successful rate against the 300 rockets the palestinians have fired. the gulf missiles intercepted less than 10% of their target. iron dome has always made a huge difference. as of today, israel has only reported three deaths. in gaza the dea

thailand, president obama said sunday the u.s. while working to de-escalate the situation and end the fighting would stand behind its ally. >> we're fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes, workplaces and potentially killing and we'll continue to support israeli's right to support itself. >> eliot: a poll said that 57% support israel's israel. egypt is serving as an intermediary in the ongoing talks vicinity's president told reporters if the situation was further escalateed this co-mean dire consequences, and we could not accept that, and the free world could not accept that. william hague seemed to agree. a ground invasion is much more difficult for the international community to support. for more for the efforts to broker peace i'm joined by james traub and by joe cirincione president of the global security foundation and author of "bomb scare: the history and future of nuclear weapons." why now? why is this simmer conflict simmering conflict happening. >> there is an election coming up in israel. the cynical interpretation wou
actually born during that time and those kids are u.s. citizens. but his links to this country certainly are going to be put to the test tomorrow when secretary of state hillary clinton joins the peace talks. she actually landed in tel aviv tonight and she offered strong praise for the egyptian president. >> we appreciate president morsi's personal leadership and egypt's efforts thus far. as a regional leader and neighbor, egypt has the opportunity and responsibility to continue playing a crucial and constructive role in this process. >> jennifer: morsi has been in close contact with president obama as well and the two spoke today for the third time in the last 24 hours. but nonetheless, this is really going to be a tough balancing act for morsi. on the one hand, egypt needs to keep its good relations with the united states in order to secure the $1.3 billion in military aid that the u.s. gives it each year as well as the additional support it gets from institutions like the world bank. and then on the other hand,
.d. power and associates predicts that "electric vehicles will remain a very small part of the u.s. market unless automakers can lower prices and demonstrate the economic benefits to consumers." of course, the most expensive part of the electric vehicle is the battery. and that battery costs between $12,000 and $15,000 today. but it is always this way with new technologies. they start out, as you know, really pricy and they come down over time. for example the cost of a cell phone in 1982 was almost $4,000. and it weighed in at over two pounds. but by 1996, the cost was down to just $1,000. what a bargain. fast forward to today and the average phone costs about $200 and if you're a bagg ain shopper, it cab less than that. so similarly, the price of electric cars and that battery is coming down. demand is going up. sales of electric cars have increased by about 180% over last year and smart policies are helping to push even more production. for example, the obama administration implemented a federal program this yea
everybody. >> i'm jennifer granholm. tonight in the war room, the loss of 18,000 u.s. jobs is a painful and tragic lesson. the question is, will we learn from it? the best thing about eating a twinkie was the middle. we want to know what changed? the quick answer, is everything. everything always changes. there's a bridge that spans what is old and what is new for most things in life. the biggest trick is figuring out which side to stand on. let's start tonight with some hot political news. there is a fire storm in washington over a move that the president hasn't even made yet. as you may have heard he's reportedly considering nominating susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state and already the republicans are on the offensive. they need to come out strong, because they're in the senate minority next term 55-45. the dems need 60 vote to overcome republican fill buster, so they need five republicans to join them if they want to confirm rice. republicans stall worth john mccain and lindsey mccain have come out strongly against her citing the benghazi attacks and her rema

[speaking at the same time] >> or employment that isn't that expensive to pay for. so basically, they can make profits because they are selling, their prices of what production, their cost of production are not rising as rapidly and therefore they have profits. >> jennifer: so what is going to happen to cause them to reinvest? >> well, i think what we are seeing now is as the economy -- as consumer confidence does pick up as the housing market does pick up, we get more demand.
of strengthening the u.s./japanese alliance. when it comes to china as the two largest global economies both china and the united states have a responsibility to ensure sustained and balanced economic growth. this is the president's first trip abroad since his re-election. and he's been able to fill in some more details on shifting u.s. economic and security forces toward southeast asia and the pacific. but the visit is overshadowed by other international issues in the spotlight. amongst the asia pacific community, that would be the battle over the south china sea which involves china cambodia and the philippines. while that's one of asia's biggest security issues right now, it's paling in comparison to what's going on in the middle east. fighting between israel and hamas continued again yesterday. the palestinian death toll is now up near 100 and many of those people are civilians. president obama and bill clinton both took to the phones yesterday, speaking with benjamin netanyahu of israel and president mohammed morsi of

's collateral damage. if palestinians kill civilians they're abhorrent terrorists. when israel or the u.s. does it, it's ok, collateral damage. i find it grotesque. there's of course always another side, and i want you to watch a part of bbc report where they show where some of the rockets going into israel came from. >> it's been a noisy morning from down, really, we heard the thuds of israeli air strikes continuing all morning just within the last minute, really, there was a large explosion to the north of here, just to the north of gaza city, close to the coast road and at the same time, we've seen the vapor trails of dozens of rockets being fired by palestinian militants into israel. >> cenk: to be fair, as you just saw in that report, you see israeli shells coming in, but rockets being fired from heavily populated areas in the gaza strip, hence israel says i can fire back into your civilian areas and if kids get killed, that's not my fault, that's your fault. that's israel's perspective. who winds up getting killed more? israel has more fire power. three israeli's killed, 19 palestinians.
seats in the u.s. senate. they've got two extra seats. yes if john kerry goes to the state department, there is a special election but it doesn't mean a slam dunk that scott brown or any other republican wins that seat. and oh, by the way i still think president obama owes john kerry. keep in mind, the president's speech that he just had in this election on election night where he said we're not in red states and the blue states, we're the united states. that was a riff on his speech he gave at the democratic convention back in 2004 and oh, by the way he doesn't get that platform as a state senator from illinois who's running for senate. he doesn't get that platform had it not been for john kerry. who, by the way, john kerry has been a steadfast supporter showed up at all of the debates defending president obama. give the job to john kerry. he's good at it. he knows all of the world leaders from his time in the senate on the foreign relations committee. give susan rice something else. i don't know. coming up,

of that did the u.s. taxpayer get for bailing their ass out? none of it. we got the initial $10 billion mac. we did not get the back door bailout back. we did not get a piece of that company. finally look at his salary were last year. it will probably be higher than this year, $16.4 million. so he gets the bailouts from the government i am entitled. i have an expectation to exceed $1 million that i got through your bailout through hard taxpayer earned money. but you, you worked your whole life you're not entitled to social security and medicare that you paid in to because we have a different plan for you. the ceo plan is shift costs. shift costs on the middle class and the poor and take money for them. david coast is one of the most trusted visors of the obama administration. he's the ceo. the obama guys are pure establishment guys. to be fair, david what do you think the corporate tax rate should be? shouldn't that go up a little bit? he was on cmbc get a load of his answer. >> what do you think the ultimate effective tax rate should be on corporations? >> zero. zero. >> yeah, the problem
tax may be necessary to fully fund a range of social programs that would make the u.s. a more equitable society for all. for more, it is a pleasure to welcome back to the program edward toe porter, author of "the price of everything." welcome back. >> hey, thanks for having me. >> eliot: this was a fascinating and almost counterintuitive argument. we fought this political battle, we thought so we could raise the marginal rates on the rich because that would make an equitable society. you're saying it won't work. >> it won't because it won't raise enough money. once you see progressive tax rates, they are a tool basically and what i'm proposing is one of the important goals is they're to reduce inequality. to reduce inequality, the experience of a bunch of other countries, you really need money. the progressive tax system that we have even thor it is more progressive than that does not really raise that much. >> eliot: one of the points you make in the article is our tax system is more progressive but even with

by the local u.s. attorneys. it's the local u.s. attorney here in melissa haig and others around the state who are hyper aggressive and they're not collaborating with city and county government who is are regulating medical encourage in marijuana in a responsible way. what obama is doing is he's showing a failure of leadership. 's not leading the aggressive attacks, but he's not pulling back on ways he could be doing on what they are doing. >> legalization versus decriminalization. i hear talks where it's one and the same. we don't say we're liberals but progressives. is there a major distinction? >> there is. basically legalization refers to more or less regulating marijuana like alcohol, which is what colorado and washington are proposing to do, and what this marijuana initiative did in california two years ago. that gets rid of the black market it brings in quality control and ultimately it's the right thing to do. decriminalization is a step in that direction. it's saying that it's still he will legal to produce or grow a large amount but no one will go to jail. governor schwarzenegger a f

's the percentage of u.s. adults who are not just overweight but obese. the figure comes from the most recent national health and nutrition examination sur survey in 2010. with you heard plenty of medical reasons for this but there is also a political correlation. look at states where the total obesity levels were above 30% last year. aside from michigan, every single one of them voted for mitt romney last week, by a safe margin. these are solid red states like indiana, west virginia, oklahoma louisiana, and far and away the heaviest of all mississippi. if the election were just held among the fattest least healthy places in america, mitt romney would be going into the white house, with a mandate. on the other hand, look at the states with obesity levels under 25%. out of 11 states all but three went for obama. does this mean voting republican is fattening? well probably not but we can say one thing for sure. the states that voted for obama generally seem to knowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww >> eliot: without question the most talked about moment from president obama's press conference was hi
? that's what was essential. let me say this. mr. romney we passed the dream act 216-208. 55 u.s. senators stood up in the senate to pass the dream act. what the president did was the will of the people transmitted through their legislative body. you're just angry because we were able to get over your filibustering in the senate. >> eliot: that's exactly right. the interesting thing is the republican party at least those who are thinking about the future are rejecting mitt romney's view. they're saying this is a world view of the past. they know for the politics of the future and what some of them believe, they've gotta change their views. the dynamic is going to be different going forward i think. >> i think it is going to be. this morning, i saw my friend, congressman paul ryan. we talked a little bit this morning. you know what the first thing he reminded me, he said luis, i was a cosponsor of your original comprehensive immigration bill along with other republicans. we had a wonderful conversation. i'm not commi
